Design Optimization Flashblog: Optimizing Design at BIMForum

By James Vandezande of HOK on May 08, 2014

I recently had the privilege to co-host the Spring BIMForum conference held at the Renaissance Waterfront in Boston, MA. BIMForum is a group whose mission is:

“…to facilitate and accelerate the adoption of building information modeling (BIM) in the AEC industry. We will lead by example and synchronize with counterparts in all sectors of the industry to jointly develop best practice for virtual design and construction (VDC).”

The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) was the founder of this growing group, but the AIA has also joined forces with the AGC in support of BIMForum’s goals. We selected the theme of this event as “Optimizing Design with BIM” – a broad look at how we are improving our process and our products with technology. The presentation proposals were selected from a wide variety of disciplines – from computation, to urban design, to architecture and engineering. Click here to watch our conference theme introduction…
